Roots Cafe just replaced Café Sutra on the Slope and already has the makings of a local hangout for the newly unemployed. Bookshelf with Eggers, Poe, and Tolkien? Check. Plush couches? Check. Menu for all-day breakfast sandwiches scrawled on a chalkboard? Check. Plus good coffee: Beans hail from Stumptown, out of Portland. [Serious Eats NY]
